Brexit and PI Arising from Road Traffic Accidents
EU law applies directly and indirectly to personal injury practice in the UK. With the referendum vote to leave the EU and the triggering of article 50 in March 2017 it is necessary to consider the possible effect that leaving the EU will have on personal injury law and practice.
Currently, EU law has a significant impact on the following areas of Personal Injury law:
· road traffic accidents both at home and abroad;
· health and safety at work
· personal injury arising from defective products
This webinar aims to give an overview of the current impact of EU legislation with a particular focus on personal injury arising out of road traffic accidents. Consideration will also be given to the consequences of Brexit on the current position and what practitioners should look out for once we reach 29 March 2019.
During this session barrister Adam Gadd of Pump Court Chambers will cover the following:
· The law applicable to non-contractual obligations (Brussels I and Rome II);
· Right of Action against Insurers - The European Communities (Rights against Insurers) Regulations 2002;
· The Sixth Directive – what does it do?
